    Hi everbody who has gotten married or will get married at Ocean Coral & Turquesa!

     

    Has any one had a donkey at their wedding at OCT, or are planning on having a donkey?  If so, when was your wedding, or when are you getting married? 

     

    I am wondering if OCT permits a donkey to be rented?

     

    I am having a Mexican-Fiesta Theme for my wedding and a donkey would work very well along with a Mariachi band.  I know that I can hire the Mariachi band  through the resort, and I plan to do that.   But who do I contact for a donkey to appear for a short while, maybe 45 to 60 minutes?  I know Planner 1 Events is the vendor that OCT deals with, and Planner 1 has donkeys for rental.  I am wondering if anyone has actually rented one for their wedding, and how did it go?

     

    Thanks for any info you may have~

      Ughhhh...I wanted a donkey sooooooo bad for my fiesta themed wedding...Dang it, I could not find anyone to rent me one. I am not sure if they are allowed, but I LOVE the idea, how fun and festive. I would love to see your wedding and how it turns out!!!

          Just in case anyone else is interested in having a donkey at Ocean Coral and Turquesa, I am going to post a response to my own question.  OCT  finally responded to my email, and now  I know the answer.  Ocean Coral And Turquesa Resort does not allow live animals on their property.  Something really wierd, however, is that the WC said she will try to find a "fake donkey" for us and see how much it would cost.  I have never seen a fake donkey, and I don't know what she means -- is it like a deer head mounted on a wall?  How about a stuffed donkey on wheels?  How about a rocking donkey (like a rocking horse) that kids ride on???  Who knows, but I can't wait to see what they come up with. I can't believe that we would have to pay for a fake donkey!

                i think yours looks a bit nicer than the one i imagine: (either like this, or with 2 people)

                      Wow!  I had absolutely no idea that such a thing existed!  Who would have ever thought of a stuffed donkey???   That donkey is a lot better looking than I thought it would be, but in no way would I be willing to pay $ to rent it.  PS: Gotta love those wheels, haha!
